Good morning: Which peanut butter would you rather eat, one which lists numerous added ingredients including hydrogenated vegetable oil, mono and diglycerides or another brand which has only peanuts and salt? Wouldn’t you go with the one which has the fewest added ingredients? The more things added, the more risk there is of contamination or…

Hello everyone: “I love fall! Fall is my favorite time of year!” someone recently told me. It’s hard not to agree. What’s not to love? Trees become stunning beacons of brilliant reds, yellows, and orange. Mosquitoes have disappeared. Brisk and invigorating mornings warm to comfortable afternoons. There is a lot to love about fall, but……

In the sports world it has happened more than once that an athlete who has viewed himself as indispensable to his team has refused to sign a contract and held out for more money. To his shock he is let go and his team goes on to great success without him. It turns out that…

Good morning: You know the feeling. It’s one of the first frosty fall mornings and as soon as you step outside your foot slip on a thin layer of ice. You have that awful sensation of losing your balance and you know you’re going down. You just hope that you won’t break anything. Asaph, the…

Good morning: What was he thinking? The TV morning news reported that a driver, instead of pulling over when he saw the flashing red and blue lights of a police cruiser, sped up and led the officers on a high speed chase until he finally crashed into a tree. What were they thinking? A husband…

Good morning: We take tomorrow for granted. We assume the sun will rise. We expect we will open our eyes to see it. If we don’t get around to mowing the lawn, we say, “That’s OK, I’ll do it tomorrow.” We push all kinds of decisions, tasks, and plans, even spiritual matters, off to “tomorrow.”…

Good morning, What are you willing to give? That depends, doesn’t it? You may give $10 to a friend who asks you, but would you write a check for $1,000? You give 40 of your hours each week to your employer, but what if you were asked to spend 24 hours a day seven days…

Good morning: Ever been accused of being unmotivated? Our society admires those who are driven to succeed. The executive who works grueling 80 hour weeks and reaches the pinnacle of corporate power and privilege is held up as a model for every aspiring business graduate. An athlete trains for hours every day with iron determination…

Good morning: Does a new day mean a fresh start? Not necessarily. The words, actions, and happenings of the previous day often carry over into the next. The dirty dishes left in the sink last night are still there this morning. The unfinished business at work needs to be addressed Monday morning. The hurt caused…

Good morning: A friend of mine runs “ultras,” races between 50 and 100 miles in distance. Imagine running from Milwaukee to Chicago. Could you do it? How does anyone do it? As far as I know, no one actually runs the entire distance non-stop. The strongest athlete would collapse in sheer exhaustion. The key is…
